Happy 2022 from all of us at Saffron + Poe! Whether or not you're into New Year's resolutions, we think that January is nevertheless the perfect month to get organized, enjoy a fresh start, and cultivate positive change in our lives. So this month, we're sharing a few of our favorite things – from clothing to homewares to coffee – that will inspire you to welcome in the new year with open arms.
MINIMALISTA: YOUR STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO A BETTER HOME, WARDROBE, AND LIFE
Our friend Shira Gill is a professional organizer who helps people clear both their physical and mental clutter so that they can carve out space in their home and lives for what truly matters. Her brand-new book, Minimalista, breaks down organization and minimalism into small, actionable tasks, making it the perfect way to welcome in the New Year! Snag a copy for yourself, and get one for a friend, too – it makes such a sweet, intentional gift.
2022 INTENTIONAL WALL CALENDAR
Wilde House Paper is a fellow California-based, female-owned small business, which is enough to love in itself. But when we saw their dreamy stationery – and especially this artful 2022 wall calendar – our hearts skipped a beat! Their 2022 Intentional Wall Calendar is filled with sweet inspiration carefully tailored to each month, and it looks like a work of art when hung. They also have a stunning brick-and-mortar shop just a little ways down the coast from us in San Luis Obispo, California, and we can't wait to drop in soon.
January is the best time for a wardrobe refresh! And since many of us are spending a lot of time at home these days, investing in quality, comfortable basics is key. We recently stumbled across a small female-owned clothing brand called Honest Cotton and instantly connected with their core values of creating high-quality, thoughtfully designed, and ethically made garments from 100% cotton. (They sound like Saffron + Poe's kindred spirit, no?) And as a testament to the true beauty of the garments, we couldn't even choose just one piece to feature!
VINTAGE ELMWOOD COFFEE TABLE
Something about January always inspires us to deep clean, rearrange, restyle, and breathe new life into the home. Adding a new statement piece or changing the living room layout has a way of making a whole space feel refreshed – and making you feel personally reinvigorated and inspired, too! Handcrafted in China using traditional mortise and tenon joinery, our Vintage Elmwood Coffee Table is a beautiful way to add warmth and character into your space. Even better, its generous size provides ample room for styling with your favorite accessories, candles, and books.
And for a little kick of caffeine to get extra energized and motivated for the new year, we're obsessed with this artisan coffee with impossibly pretty branding. California-based Sundream Coffee aims to infuse their coffees with the feeling of slow mornings by the sea, which is our favorite kind of feeling. (It's tied, perhaps, with the feeling of taking the first sip of hot coffee on a chilly morning.) We're definitely adding a few bags to our online shopping cart.
